Avalanche Notes

BREAKING 50: Nathan MacKinnon and Mikko Rantanen are just the fifth set of teammates since 1981-82 to be the first two NHL players to reach 50 points in a season, joining Evgeni Malkin and Sidney Crosby (2009-09), Mario Lemieux and Jaromir Jagr (1995-96), Wayne Gretzky and Glenn Anderson (1985-86) and Gretzky and Jari Kurri (1983-84).

HISTORIC STREAK: Mikko Rantanen's career-long 14-game point streak was snapped against the New York Islanders on Monday night. The stretch matches the third-longest streak in Avalanche history (since 1995-96), trailing only Paul Stastny (20 games, Feb. 3-March 17, 2007) and Alex Tanguay (16 games, Feb. 6-March 7, 2003). Rantanen totaled 27 points (eight goals, 19 assists) during the stretch and remains the league's points (56) and assists (41) leader.

by Ron Knabenbauer @RonKnab / ColoradoAvalanche.com

The Colorado Avalanche held the New York Islanders to single-digit shot totals each period, but the ones that found twine during power plays seemed to be the difference.

New York scored twice with the man advantage in the second period to stretch its lead and the club eventually defeated Colorado 4-1 at Pepsi Center on Monday night.

The Avalanche finished with a 31-21 edge in shots, as the Islanders fired seven pucks on net each frame, but the home team only converted on one of its five power-play chances and didn't generate enough during 5-on-5 play.

Morning Skate Report: Avs Expect Tough Game Against Islanders

Colorado aiming for another strong start but less dramatic finish

by Ron Knabenbauer @RonKnab / ColoradoAvalanche.com

It was far from the team's best game of the season, but the Colorado Avalanche found a way to pick up a regulation victory against a division foe.

The Avalanche defeated the Dallas Stars 6-4 in its last outing on Saturday night, but Dallas made it an interesting ending after rallying from a 4-2 deficit in the third period to tie the game with less than five minutes to play.

There was no panic on Colorado's side though, as the club's top line responded by netting two markers to secure the win. First was Gabriel Landeskog's redirection off a point shot 76 seconds after the Stars had scored and then Nathan MacKinnon's empty-netter with 1:23 left.
